Tiger Crow Orchid
Odontocidium Tiger Crow ‘Golden Girl’
Synonyms: Odcdm. Tiger Hambühren x Odcdm. Crowborough
These are from the Orchid Show. They were blooming with these huge sprays and add to that were a lot of sprays and you can imagine how beautiful it was. Since I have never grown Odontocidium Orchids here is a link to Orchid web.com’s page on this Orchid:
That is a great website to figure anything out about Orchids.
The top picture was shot using the 105mm VR Nikkor lens. The bottom picture used the 60mm Micro-nikkor.
I am still cautiously optimistic about this season as I have 3 appointments on Saturday. I came across this quote from Bo Bennett:
“As sure as the spring will follow the winter, prosperity and economic growth will follow recession.”
Yesterday we pruned a 125-foot long Privet hedge in White Plains. It had to come down 2-3 feet so we were cutting into some fairly big branches. The garden is mostly all perennials and it really looked bleak. I couldn’t resist poking into the soil to see if the perennials were coming up.
